Connecting to SNYK


Snyk (pronounced sneak) is a developer security platform for securing code, dependencies, containers, and infrastructure as code.

Snyk tests for vulnerabilities in your own code, open-source dependencies, Container images, and Infrastructure as Code (IaC) configurations, and offers context, prioritization, and fixes.

Snyk reporting acts as a Bill of Materials (BOM) to quickly and easily identify which projects have a specific version of a dependency. Dependency reports identify each individual open-source dependency by name, along with version, vulnerabilities, and related projects.

Snyk uses CVSS framework version 3.1 to communicate the characteristics and severity of vulnerabilities.
